B. Groundwater, State Water Project & Surface Water
1% fresh water for people, plants and animals.
75 -80% of our water is recycled through agriculture and plants.
Some surfaces allow water to soak into the ground and some do not. These are called permeable and impermeable surfaces.
70% of 1% fresh water is used for agriculture
Increased amount of impermeable surfaces means less water soaking into underground aquifers and can raise the air temperature.
Water that runs into the storm drain is called runoff and is not filtered. This sends pollutants into the waterways and ocean.
Water that leaves our house goes to the wastewater treatment plant and is cleaned and recycled.
Lytle Creek
70% of household water is used outside rather than inside.
The typical depth of groundwater is approximately 400 to 500 feet in the Inland Empire.

Source #1
Groundwater
Aquifers
San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District (SBVMWD)
recharges the groundwater. The water is then sold to smaller local water departments. SBVMWD covers about 353 square miles in San Bernardino County and serves about 695,000 people.

Water soaks down into the ground. This groundwater gets trapped in between sand & rocks.
These are called.....
Sand & Gravel

Water's Worth It
Cohesion and surface tension
5-ESS2-2. Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.
The Santa Ana Watershed covers 2,650 miles
A long period of time with little or no precipitation.
Water's Worth It
Water is One of Our Most precious Resources.
4-ESS2.A: Earth Materials and Systems: Rainfall helps to shape the land and affects the types of living things found in a region.
Storm drain
Water is one of our most precious resource. Many third world and developing countries struggle with ensuring that there will be enough water that is both available and safe.
